I've seen inexpensive used ROLA, Heppner, etc. Alnico magnet 12" speakers using whizzer cones on flea-bay.
The great majority of these were wide-range organ speakers.

The Eminence Beta 12LTA is popular.

I like the Eminence Beta 12LTA but it needs a phase plug to sound it's best.

Looks like you augment it with a tweeter ?

We certainly found the 12LTA needed lotsa help to be close to musical and as refined in terms of low level detail/ resolution as most of the Alpairs, Fostex FF series, and especially the new 103SOL - worth every penny IMO. We happened to have some old Realistic versions of the FT17H on hand, and along with phase plugs, they fit the bill well enough.


But this thread is mainly about an efficient 12" that does what you expect from that size, and the 12LTA are certainly inexpensive enough to play with
